( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I appreciate your honest criticism, but it is extremely vague and not very constructive. You've told me what not to do, but not why, nor any suggestions.

I'm working on a set of scripts that were jimmy-rigged together and my task is to streamline them. They do currently work, but in a very poor manner. The input file is opened, read, and closed repeatedly during the process, which I'm working to minimize. I understand that it is not good practice to load very large files into memory, hence why I'm using Tie::File to read the input line-by-line, which is working very well. There is no risk of losing my input file, since my script creates a copy and works from it.

You seem to think I'm going to blindly forward my work without any debugging or testing. For each addition, I run multiple tests to make sure the script is moving in a positive direction and that the output data is verified. You philosophy seems to be "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". My job is to fix it and perfect it.

I invite any constructive suggestions.
